The Kester Millwork Shop, constructed in 1911-1912, is a fully equipped early 20th century wood-working shop located in Neligh, Antelope County. The shop, owned and operated by four generations of the Kester family, produced architectural elements and furniture for many properties in the Neligh area. The building is one of the best preserved millwork shops in Nebraska, and it also possesses an intact power system consisting of an array of line shafts, pulleys, belts, and connected machinery throughout the building.
